Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Some of southern Nevada's brightest, most hard working future leaders are headed to Camp Pendleton.
Early Thursday morning, the Devil Pups boarded a bus to head to the California Marine Corp Base for encampment. It's a 10 day leadership experience that will test them mentally and physically.
We started off with nearly 70 applicants 10 weeks ago. They spent their weeks doing physical training and community service. In the end 35 made the cut and are headed to Camp Pendleton thanks for some generous donors including retired marines and Southwest Gas.
Every year, Camp Pendelton hands out awards at encampment. And our Las Vegas group is so well trained they generally bring home about half of the awards. They've earned quite a reputation and they are making us proud.
